Norwalk Fire Department

Press Release

February 20, 2016

The Norwalk Fire Department responded to a roof fire at 50 Washington Street. This is the second time in as many days that firefighters were called to the building. Today’s fire erupted at 3:50 pm, as steel brackets were being welded to the roof deck. The welding subsequently caught the roof membrane and insulation on fire. Friday nights fire at 6:30pm, was the result of roofers sealing the roofs membrane with a torch, which caught the roofing materials on fire.

Both fires occurred on the buildings front overhang, a new addition to the 12 story buildings facade. Smoke from both fires did enter  the 1st floors retail area that is under renovation and the basement, but did not enter any of the upper floors.

Deputy Fire marshal Christian Hansen was on scene investigating the cause of both fires and ensuring that proper hot work safety practices are being followed in the future.

50 Washington Street is a 12 story office building built in 1972 and is undergoing a major renovation.
